Dr. Hanson comes to JTHS from Hill City School District in South Dakota, where he served as superintendent for over 7 years.

His vast resume includes over 24 years of educational experience with leadership roles in strategic planning, instructional design, and implementation of safety and security protocols using the ALICE framework.
"I look forward to working in partnership with our staff, parents, students, and community to uphold the tradition of excellence that has been established at Joliet Township High School," said Dr. Hanson. "This public reception is the first of many community engagement activities planned to give me an opportunity to listen to our community and learn the diverse needs of the district."
